Vacation Of A Lifetime

Reviewed By Karen - Centereach, New York | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Aisling and Authentic Ireland exceeded my expectations! The custom tour she planned was fabulous. All of my questions (and there were many) were promptly and cheerfully answered. All of the accommodations she recommended, from the hotels to the B&B's to the castles, were top rated. The Dromoland castle was quite an experience. The B&B owners were so warm and friendly and full of great information. The restaurants that Aisling recommended were charming and delicious. Everything was taken care of for us, we just had to show our vouchers. We drove over 1,000 miles taking in so much natural beauty and history and warmth of the Irish people. Can't wait to go back and will use Authentic Ireland again! My family was truly impressed. Thanks, Aisling for all of your help!!

Trip to Ireland/Scotland/England

Reviewed By Jim and Randi - Littleton, Colorado | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
I believe it was in November 2015, or thereabouts, Jim discovered your company on the web. And what a great find it was! We were fortunate enough to begin working with Aisling on our dream trip of 10 weeks in Ireland, Scotland, and England. We began our travels on May 22, 2016 and what an incredible journey it turned out to be; everything we dreamed of, and more. And none of it could have happened without the expert help from Aisling. From the beginning, she was perfect in every way. As an older couple, we had concerns about traveling abroad, and for such an extended stay. I don't think we would have gone if we hadn't received the guidance, and assurance from Aisling. She worked with us tirelessly, in finding the right properties and automobiles. She even provided an extensive and thorough day trip plan, complete with histories, and noteworthy comments on areas and sites to visit. Our express thanks go to Authentic Ireland, and Aisling for giving us such a wonderful experience.

Authentic Ireland and Aisling were wonderful

Reviewed By Kristin - West Chester, Ohio | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
I would absolutely recommend Authentic Ireland, and Aisling in particular to anyone planning a trip. We had a complicated group, some people arriving a few days late, a couple leaving a day early, and we had to change our dates a few times mid-planning. Aisling fulfilled our every request and re-worked our itinerary so it would fit with our group. We asked for mainly bed and breakfasts, a castle one night, and hotels in the bigger cities for convenience and she delivered all of those to us. There was a mix up at our final hotel regarding our reservation. I emailed Aisling and she worked on it immediately and kept me updated throughout the day, and was very apologetic even though it was in no way her, or Authentic Ireland's fault. For a stress free way to plan your vacation I would definitely book through Authentic Ireland. I can't wait to go back and will definitely use them again.

Best Trip Ever

Reviewed By Lea - Montgomery | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
I had the best trip ever! Aisling did a wonderful job with recommendations on where we should visit and the hotels were great but I personally loved the B & B's. My favorite thing we did was go across the Carrick Rede Bridge and tour the Belleek Factory. I can't wait to go back and tour the south of Ireland.

Simply Amazing !

Reviewed By Patricia - Simply Amazing ! | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Thank you so much Aisling and Authentic Ireland for helping make my "self-drive" Ireland vacation such a memorable one. Since photography is such a major part of all of my vacations, I wanted to be able to drive through this magnificent country and stop along the road at will. It was also important to me to be able to experience traditional Irish music in the evenings alongside the wonderful Irish people in a cozy Irish pub. I was pointed in the right direction on all accounts.
Ireland is a special place. Irish people are a beautiful people. I'm so lucky to have been able to experience both.
And thanks to booking thru Authentic Ireland, I was able to focus on the fun and not have to deal with the details. I'd use their services again and again!

Trouble Free Trip To Ireland

Reviewed By Nick - Halifax, Ma | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
It was smooth sailing on our recent 8 day trip to Ireland. Our first time so there was a bit of anxiety about a self drive trip with vouchers. But every check in, rental and activity went perfectly. Aisling was fantastic. The Merry Ploughboy Show in Dublin was great and is highly recommended for good food, drink and quality entertainment. Our hotels were clean, comfortable and centrally located. The extra car rental insurance that came with our trip at no extra charge was invaluable for peace of mind.
We can't wait until our next visit. We recommend AuthenticIreland.com and will definitely use their services again.

Best Overseas Trip Ever

Reviewed By Karen & Gary - Erie Pa | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Authentic Ireland and Aisling made this a wonderful trip. The hotel choices were spot on. All were on the coast and we woke to sea air and surf when we were not in Dublin. We had the freedom to wander and explore to our hearts content. The cost was reasonable and we felt welcome wherever we went. We saw a lot and experienced some of the best food we have had anywhere. Just enough left to see to bring us back. Driving was unexpectedly easier than we envisioned. The car was ok and got us around. Glad we didn't bring the "clubs" though as it was very compact. Next time we will golf and we will again have Authentic Ireland make the arrangements!! Lots of wonderful memories.
Thank you

2nd Amazing Ireland Trip

Reviewed By Susan - Saint Cloud, Florida | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Back in 2013 Authentic Ireland helped us plan our once in a lifetime trip to Ireland; and it was perfect! So, when we unexpectedly had a chance to revisit Ireland this month, the first contact I made was to Aisling at Authentic Ireland. We were once again planning a self-drive tour and wanted to get in as much as possible. Aisling did not disappoint. We explored Dublin, Trim, Meath, Galway, Killarney, Kilkenny and Kinsale. All of our accommodations (as different as they were from each other) were wonderful and I would recommend them all. Thinking about Scotland for our next adventure, and when we're ready we'll be calling on Authentic Ireland to help us!

Ireland Self Drive

Reviewed By Bernardo - Boca Raton, FL | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
There were 6 of us in this trip, from a 12 year old to his grandparents in their late 60s. All of us had a great time. Ireland is beautiful, the people very friendly, even the weather was nice. All the visits and recommendations were excellent, the hotels amazing and the experience unforgettable.

Thank You!

Reviewed By Rachel Ferguson - Fulton, MO | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
We had the privilege to work with Aisling McMahon while planning our Ireland Trip. My husband and I had an idea of the things we wanted to see while in Ireland. Aisling arranged each nights (7) stay and our rental car for us. I created a book with all the vouchers and paperwork we would need while there and it was so easy at each stop. Everything is absolutely breathtaking there. We met such wonderful, kind and friendly people on our journey throughout the country. I would recommend traveling to Ireland, AuthenticIreland.com and Aisling McMahon as your travel agent. We were so blessed with the opportunity to travel to Ireland and miss it greatly!

Thank you Aisling and Authentic Ireland. Everything promised and arranged came off perfectly without ANY problems. The itinerary was excellent, and sight-seeing recommendations were spot on.

The Trip Of A Lifetime!

Reviewed By Rhonda - Colorado Springs, CO | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Our trip was fantastic! We travelled all over central Ireland in our little rental. All the tiny, winding roads were quite an adventure! The beauty of the landscapes & friendliness of the people was astounding! Every B&B we stayed in was amazing - the food, accommodations & the hospitality! The planning done in advance really paid off as we were able to cram in maximum activities each day. Aisling was so helpful in helping me plan for all the different experiences we wanted to have. Thanks for everything - we'll remember this vacation forever!

Just got back from an awesome vacation to Ireland ! Aisling worked with me every step of the way and helped me plan out a once in a lifetime trip. Aisling was phenomenal !!! She helped me plan it all out and was most gracious and accommodating as I made several changes along the way before finalizing the hotels and the car. The hotels were gorgeous and perfectly located. Her wisdom , suggestions and help were a crucial component of smooth sailing, great time. I would not hesitate to use this site and Aisling was an angel.

Great Trip

Reviewed By Joe - Boston, MA | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Having never been to Ireland we had little reference beyond the anecdotes of friends to guide our choices. As it was the wife's birthday celebration, we decided to pay more for the convenience and the savings of time, effort and worry by using Authentic Ireland.To say we were happy with our decision is a gross understatement. From our driver, to the hotels and other choices Aisling arranged for us, we couldn't have been more pleased with this service. The west coast of Ireland, where we concentrated, isn't the easiest place to navigate. Having our own driver who was DEDICATED to making sure we were pleased was an essential decision. He drove the often "challenging" roads of Galway, Spittle and Kerry, taking us to all the key sites, making sure we got the best vistas, best dinners and lunch choices and could not have been more accommodating or professional. We'd do Authentic again in a heart beat!

40th Wedding Anniversary

Reviewed By Tom Savage - Pewaukee Wisconsin | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Our first time in Ireland was to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We told Aisling Mcmahon what we wanted to see and do and she took it from there. The accomodations that she selected were fantastic, all 4 star or better including a night in a castle which was very special. We saw the ring of carrie, the cliffs of Moher, Birr castle , The rock of cashel, Guinness storehouse, Smithwick's brewery, Tullymore Dew, The book of Kell's,Dublin castle,all kinds of pubs filled with fun loving people,andthe most courteous Irish folks I have ever met. Thanks Aisling for all you did to make our special time even better. Love, Tom and Julie

AWESOME

Reviewed By Michelle - Missouri | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
AWESOME, EXCELLENT, and ONCE IN LIFETIME ADVENTURE . Those words are the ones I would choose when talking about this company. Aisling did a wonderful job of booking the best places to stay and see. She was wonderful even though I changed the dates once and kinda panicked on the travel vouchers. She booked the self drive for my mom and I and we had a wonderful time.
